When I learned the word "parasocial," it was helpful for me to understand some things I don't think I had completely gotten. But like so many others before it, it seems to be becoming shorthand for "any online behavior I do not approve of."

To recap:

1. In 2018, What Free Words (WFW) reverse engineers what3words (w3w) in a clean room with JavaScript.
2. WFW is ported to other languages.
3. In 2019, w3w legally goes after WFW for trademark and copyright infringement.
4. WFW is effectively pulled offline.

:boost_ok: :ablobcatwave: Please boost this post if you would like the EFF to join the fediverse. :ablobcatbongo:

In a survey the EFF sent me, I suggested they create an account on the fediverse, so they can reach more supporters and support innovative free software that promotes interoperability among platforms, something they've advocated for in the past, too.

If you can boost this post, maybe I'll be able to show them that there are quite a few users who would like them here!

The EFF is the infamous nonprofit organisation that fights for privacy, government transparency, and digital freedom. Their fight is very important, and the EFF is very special to me. https://www.eff.org/about https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electronic_Frontier_Foundation

You can see some of their work here https://www.eff.org/work

In the meantime, you can follow @eff, which is an unofficial mirror of their Twitter.
